The projects are located near Awandjelo in Togo’s Kara region and near Sokode in the Central region of the West African country.

The pre-qualification stage concludes on March 30, 2020.

The following tender will be open to independent power producers (IPPs) and organised through the Scaling Solar initiative, a World Bank Group programme aimed at governments in emerging markets.

According to the AT2ER’s pre-qualification notice, potential bidders are required to have the experience, expertise and financial resources to carry out the projects under tight deadlines. Pre-qualified bidders can bid for both projects and win them if they offer the best prices.

The concession will be awarded for 25 years.
